I have read the rules and the first one says:
"1. Don't ask for or provide illegal content, discuss cheating devices or cheat codes. This includes episode downloads, Gameshark, Action Replay, ROMs, etc"
I understand ROM's since they are truly outlawed, but why cheating devices and cheat codes especially? Cheating devices such as the ones listed in the first rule are not illegal. The use of them is frowned upon and if anything happens to your game the warranty is void, but it is not illegal. The purchase and use of cheating devices are perfectly legal and they are sold all over the country in many stores. Cheat codes really surprised me since cheats codes are built into the game by the creators. So why has the discussion of them been made illegal on this forum?
I know this post will most likely be locked even though I'm not specifically discussing any cheat code or device nor am I asking for or providing any as the rules state. Before it is locked though, I would like an honest answer to my honest question. Thank you.
